Acrobatic duo to perform
April 27, 2005
Tahoe Arts Project will present the physical theater duo The Tweaksters.
Their innovative mix of acrobatic dance and artistic juggling blends pure athletic creativity with odd objects in a rhythmic, whimsical performance designed to tweak and delight audiences of all ages. The Tweaksters, also known as Regan Patno and Julia Snyder will perform their energizing show at 7 p.m. on Saturday at South Tahoe High School Little Theater.
With the Tweaksters, you can’t imagine what you’ll experience next. Audiences of all ages are swept into a sensory whirlwind as the Tweaksters use their athletic prowess and fertile imaginations to deftly manipulate meteors, flower pots, and galvanized pipes, not to mention each other. From ping-pong air raids to glow-in-the-dark illusions to skillful feats of strength and balance, this adventure keeps audiences oohing and aahing. Sometimes regarded as “The Blue Man Group without the paint,” The Tweaksters seemingly ignore the laws of physics, tweaking all the way. It’s original, zany fun and all without words.
The Tweaksters will be performing in local schools through Friday as part of Tahoe Arts Project’s arts in the schools programs. Don’t miss your opportunity to see these incredible performers during their full show on Saturday. Tickets are $7 for adults and $3 for children and seniors and may be purchased in advance at South Lake Tahoe and Tahoe Douglas chambers of commerce. Tickets also will be available at the door. Seating will begin at 6:30 p.m.
